27 February 2021

Welcome to Saturday 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules.We love memes, however, and here is today's meme.

BILLS, BILLS, BILLS (1999)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about a cheating boyfriend. Unlike most songs, where the lover deceives by seeing another, this one squanders his girl's financial resources. She sings that he's ruined her credit. Do you know your credit score?

What a long paragraph for such a short question!  Yes, I know my credit score.  I've been checking Credit Karma for years.

2) How often do you pay your bills? Do you handle them as they come in, or do you pay weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? Or are you lucky enough to have someone else handle your bills?

Walt pays most of our bills.  I only have one or two to worry about, and I pay them in full when they are due.

3) Destiny's Child had a hit with "Bills, Bills, Bills." This girl group got their start in Houston, TX. During the recent, bruising storm, lead singer Beyonce sent food, money and water to her home state. Have you spent much time in the Lone Star State?

There was a time when I traveled there several times to visit friends, but the friends have either died or moved out of Texas, so I have no excuse to visit any more.  I remember fondly the carpets of bluebonnets we saw one spring.

4) Beyonce is the breakout star of the group and went on to have a highly successful solo career. Can you think of another star who began his/her career as the member of a group?

Diana Ross, John Lennon

5) "Bills, Bills, Bills" was performed a cappella by the kids on Glee. That Fox show ran for six seasons. Were you a fan?

I watched it the first couple of seasons, but it was too "young" and I gave up.

6) In 1999, when this song was on the charts, SpongeBob SquarePants premiered. The show remains popular among the younger set. Have you ever seen it?

Not Once.

7) SpongeBob has become an industry, spawning movies, a Broadway musical, video games and both coloring and comic books. Once considered children's amusements, today coloring and comic books enjoy a following among adults. Have you recently enjoyed coloring or reading a comic book?

Neither.  I have thought about coloring, but don't think I would stick with it -- and I color outside the lines anyway.

8) Also in 1999, Walmart expanded to the United Kingdom. Do you shop at Walmart?

Almost never.

9) Random question -- We've all met people who aren't exactly as they present themselves. Are you good at spotting a phony?

Occasionally, but usually not.  Of course, I don't know that I've met many phonies.
